Since I didn't get but a couple of emails from Spark People for several hours, I KNEW something was up with that since I usually get close to a gazillion emails. I went to my Email Preference Page, and the boxes had been UNCHECKED, and the box "SEND NO MORE EMAILS" had been checked. Isn't that weird? I knew to check there because that has happened before several times. Something about the Internet Provider refusing emails, and once that happens, no more are sent. Weird, but 'fixable' if one knows to check his/her email preference page.

Busy day as all of my Mondays are busy days. All went well though, so it was OK.

I hope you all have a GREAT WEDNESDAY!

HUGS

Sorry to hear the email gremlin is at work. (I'm trying to help another member. Is that the box for "Never Email Me Again"? Are we talking about the same check box?)

Nothing special going on today. Last night was so long and busy at the race track that I am taking it easy today. I did have two classes at the YMCA, but other than that, I haven't accomplished anything YET. I still have time to do all that I intend to do tonight.

This week is not filled with so many 'off the wall' things for me. I do have one BIG thing happening next Monday. It is a fun thing though, and after I get it all planned out, I will tell you about it. Right now it is in the 'planning' stage. That is quite often the hardest part of making something work...the PLANNING! emoticon

I hope you ALL had a GREAT WEEKEND! Have a BLESSED WEEK!

    I'm glad you were able to have your night at the races, and that you were able to take things pretty easy yesterday. I hope you got the things done that you intended to.

I'll be eager to hear what you are planning!

Have a great day!

Races are ON for today. I don't think we've had any rain all week. This was a very trying week for me, so I've not had much time to be around. Lots of things that were on my list of "To Do's" have been done now. That makes me happy, but it was certainly a lot of work, thought, and time involved. Of course, I didn't accomplish enough to give up my "Queen of Procrastination" crown, so I hope no one gets her/his hopes up of taking that title away from me. emoticon

Gotta run now, and I hope you ALL have a GREAT WEEKEND!

    It must be in the air !!! I've also been getting a lot done. I'm throwing things out and cleaning what is staying. It feels great to make progress. We are house sitting this week and I even cleaned my daughters dining light fixture and replaced the bulbs. LOL

Hello, it's ME! emoticon

Normally, I would not be here at this time of day on a Saturday, BUT again the races were rained out, so here I am! Actually, this is the THIRD time this particular race event has been rained out. I mentioned it several weeks ago, 'The Hooker Hood Classic" which is in memory of Hooker Hood who raced at the track for years. It is rescheduled for next Saturday night. Hopefully, it will not get rained out again.

More vehicle 'woes and worries.' Yesterday, my truck broke down while I was in a drive thru line to pay the telephone bill. I just got it out of the shop for something else (oil pan) on Wednesday. My brother in law swears that particular Tire and Brake business does something to mess up vehicles so they will have to come back in for a return visit (and more $$$$$$ for the business). Something similar happened to him a year or so ago. I did not take it back to that same business for the repairs (steering column) this time. I have my sister's spare vehicle, which is a blessing, and I am considering getting another vehicle once the truck is repaired. It has already cost me about $3,000 in repairs just this year. I can't afford to keep getting it fixed on a part-time fitness instructor's income.

So that is what's going on around here tonight. I hope things haven't been quite so 'out of the ordinary' for any of you. Take care, and have a wonderful SUNDAY!

HUGS
Pam

Older vehicles do seem to start having one problem after another. Getting something newer sounds like a good idea.
I hope you have a good Sunday!

  I know what you mean about the car repairs! I lived for years with not one, but two cars, both of which were constantly breaking down. I don't even like to think of the amount of money I spent on repairs, not to mention towing. I hope you can find a good, reliable, fair mechanic. Best wishes!

    So sorry the races had to be cancelled once again :( Unfortunately that's what happens to older vehicles, get one thing fixed and the next thing you know it's something else. It's good that you can borrow your sister's car, but perhaps it's time to start looking for a different, more reliable vehicle? Sure hope tomorrow is a better day for you!

    Pam, I think when a car gets older, you fix one thing the second breaks down because the first thing is working so well it screws it up. I hope that made more sense to you than it did to me, lol

    Well, sorry that the truck is kaput again! Glad you have your sister's vehicle to borrow, but sounds like you need something more reliable to drive for sure.

HUGS and wise choice NOT to take it back to the same shop!

Hello Everyone,

Not much going on around here today or tonight. It started to rain earlier, but it didn't last very long. There is a 70% chance of rain for tomorrow. That will probably rain out the races for Saturday IF it actually happens. I will have to wait and see. I have a ton of things to keep me busy if the races are canceled, so I won't be bored. Actually, I am never bored because I ALWAYS have a gazillion things that need to be done around the house. I just don't want to do them. Ever feel like that? emoticon

Anyway, I hope everyone has a nice Friday and a GREAT WEEKEND.

Take care and HUGS
Pam
